Gansey Vest

Jones: "This is a dressy gansey vest, knitted circularly to the underarm. No seams except the shoulders! Knit purl patterns are easily memorized and can be changed at the whim of the knitter." This is a handsome basic piece as given, with knit/purl patterning rounds/rows separated by a few rounds/rows of st st. (One is a sideways arrowhead pattern, the other diamonds.) Neckline and armholes are finished by a few rounds of st st (worked in the round), which will naturally roll in a most pleasing fashion.
